What is the Gener8 Marketplace?
First up, what actually is Gener8 Marketplace? When you use the Gener8 Browser or Gener8 extension in Rewards mode, you total up a number of points from passively browsing online. The Marketplace is the hub of many different types of rewards in which you can spend your browsing points 🎉.
Nice! So how do I get access to the Marketplace?
Once you’ve downloaded the Gener8 Browser or installed the Gener8 extension, signed up and completed your profile, you’ll need to either:
- Use Gener8 for 5 consecutive days. 👩💻
Get browsing! Once you’ve used Gener8 for 5 days in a row, you’ll automatically be granted access to the Marketplace
- Refer 2 UK 🇬🇧 friends!
Once both of your referred friends have generated at least one point from browsing online they will become verified – automatically giving you access to the Marketplace 🙌 .
What kind of rewards can I find on Gener8 Marketplace?
You’ll find a whole host of different types of rewards on the marketplace:
🎉 Exclusive offers – exclusive offers from our brand partners, giving you awesome discounts to try out new and exciting products or experiences
🎗 Support a cause – use your Gener8 points to donate to some amazing charities. We switch up the featured charities at the start of each month so that we can make it easier for you to donate to as many important causes as possible. This is available for everyone outside of the UK too!
👨💻 Tech products – tech products including speakers, kindles and even more
🛍 Gift cards – a variety of gift cards from your favourite brands across supermarkets, food, fashion and gaming. Please note: the Gener8 Marketplace is still currently self-funded, so gift cards will sometimes be limited or unavailable 🕹
😎 Experiences – each week we’ll have experiences up for grabs on Gener8 Marketplace. From cinema tickets, spa days and helicopter rides 🚁
🥳 Gener8 Merchandise – stickers, webcam covers and more for those who want to deck out their tech with Gener8 merch
🛒 Product drops – for gift cards and tech products, you’ll see a timer that will countdown to the time that the product drops. Once the timer clocks out, if you’re quick, you’ll be able to redeem a high-value item with your Gener8 points 🎉
🤑 Auctions – The idea behind auctions, is to give people a chance to choose how many points they’re willing to use to redeem an item. The items will be up on Marketplace for a predetermined amount of time, with a countdown timer to let you know how long you have left to beat the highest bid.
🎁 Mystery Boxes – If you fancy yourself a bit of a risk-taker, you can chance your luck by redeeming a reward through a mystery box. What’s in the mystery box? A mix of tech products, gift cards, exclusive offers and experiences.
Please note that if you’re using Gener8 outside of the UK, you’ll be able to donate your points to charities but there will be limitations on other rewards in the Marketplace.
We are planning to open up Gener8 Marketplace to other regions in the near future, so keep saving up your points for when we’re ready to launch in your country! 🚀
Is there a limit to the number of rewards I can redeem?
Since we’re still fully funding Gener8 Marketplace ourselves, we do have some purchase limits to make sure that all Gener8 users have a fair chance of redeeming rewards.
Right now, we have a one item per person cap every 7 days for everything EXCEPT exclusive offers and charity donations.
Exclusive offers have absolutely no limit, go crazy! You can redeem as many of these as you like as they don’t count towards the 7-day limit, even if you recently redeemed a high-value item 😎. Donating on Support a Cause will also not count towards the 7-day limit and you’ll be able to donate up to 10 points to each chosen charity.
Why do gift cards always sell out so quickly?
We’re a small start-up with big ambitions to give people the tools they need to take back control of their data and to earn from it themselves. We’re working hard behind the scenes to unlock the value from your data so that we can share it back with you. The more we grow the more value we can create and the more you’ll be able to earn.
In the meantime, we invest tens of thousands 💰 into our Marketplace each month so that people can redeem products, gift cards, donate to charity and more. The gift cards and tech products are limited in supply so they do sell out quickly and are sometimes unavailable. Keep your eyes peeled for them and be quick to catch one!
If you do miss out on something you had your eye on, we’re always restocking our exclusive offers with our brand partners or you can donate to charity instead.
